Thanks so much to the Sinfully crew for having me here today to talk about my new contemporary romance Beyond the Sea. This is a story of survival, exploring your sexuality, and finding true love where you least expect it.

While boy bander Troy and pilot Brian experience many hardships while stranded on a desert island, writing about the golden sand beach and turquoise water often made me long for a tropical vacation, especially while editing the book in the depths of a Canadian winter!

Of course that led to some wish-fulfillment googling, and here are my picks for resorts I’d most like to visit if money were no object.

Top Five Tropical Resorts I’d Visit if I Won the Lottery

5. Fowl Cay Resort, Bahamas. “Escape to your own private island.” Don’t mind if I do! Especially with all the amenities you could ever desire.

4. Song Saa Private Island, Cambodia. “In the warm sapphire waters of the Gulf of Thailand, Cambodia’s islands nestle like dazzling natural jewels.” *sighs* Yes, please.

3. The Wakaya Club & Spa, Fiji. “This serene retreat in Fiji offers gracious living, sophisticated, international cuisine and unparalleled leisure opportunities - including some of the finest scuba diving and snorkeling….” And just think, unlike Troy and Brian, you can enjoy the reef without worrying that a minor scrape will lead to an untreatable infection!

2. Hermitage Bay, Antigua. “A natural paradise - a perfect retreat for anyone wanting to escape the stresses and strains of a busy life.” Plus they have a cooking class and a golf course with an epic view.

1. Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa, French Polynesia. Can you imagine having an Overwater Suite? Their spa is “nestled in a beautiful exotic garden, overlooking the calm resort's interior laguna and surrounded by bamboo trees.” Troy and Brian had their own version of island spa days, but nothing like that!

What’s your fantasy vacation spot? Let me know in the comments below!

Synopsis

Even if it means quitting their boy band mid-tour, Troy Tanner isn’t going to watch his little brother snort his future away after addiction destroyed their father. On a private jet taking him home from Australia, he and pilot Brian Sinclair soar above the vast South Pacific. Brian lost his passion for flying—and joy in life—after a traumatic crash, but now he and Troy must fight to survive when a cyclone strikes without warning.
Marooned a thousand miles from civilization, the turquoise water and white sand beach look like paradise. But although they can fish and make fire, the smallest infection or bacteria could be deadly. When the days turn into weeks with no sign of rescue, Troy and Brian grow closer, and friendship deepens into desire.
As they learn sexuality is about more than straight or gay and discover their true selves, the world they've built together is thrown into chaos. If Troy and Brian make it off the island, can their love endure?

Meet Keira Andrews

1366040After writing for years yet never really finding the right inspiration, Keira discovered her voice in gay romance, which has become a passion. She writes contemporary, historical, paranormal and fantasy fiction, and—although she loves delicious angst along the way—Keira firmly believes in happy endings. For as Oscar Wilde once said, “The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.”

  9. I've always dreamed to go to Bora Bora, I don't know why really: I think I just fell in love with the name of the place. But when I see this: http://www.lhw.com/hotel/Bora-Bora-Pearl-Beach-Resort-Spa-Bora-Bora-French-Polynesia I may be onto something there ;-)
    I'd love to read Keira's latest release, but I'd be very happy to win one of her backlist titles as I still got much I didn't read yet!
